Pinned it, Did it: Part 5 | Pinterest Thursday | iPhonography

Well ladies and gentlemen, it's that time again! It's Pinterest Thursday and I've got some doosies for you! (Actually, I almost panic yesterday when I realized it was going to be Thursday and I hadn't even attempted any pins!)

But, I did refer to my Photography Inspiration board a few times during my photo sessions this past week. You should definitely check it out. There are so many wonderful photographers out there and it's always nice to refer to something when you get stuck in a rut with posing and what not.

I'm going to start with THIS pin. My husband, yes - you heard me right, my husband wanted to make some chili. He'd never made chili before and guess what he did? He logged onto my Pinterest account and searched "ground turkey chili" and he found this pin from a great blog,

It was fairly simple to make, I mean, it's a Crock Pot recipe.  My husband threw in a lil' extra beans and spices ... not sure what. Even he doesn't know what he put in it. But below is the original recipe:

Our picture isn't pretty, but the food was Ahhhhhmazing! I mean, my mouth is watering just looking at it again! hmm..... I still have leftovers in the fridge....

This was a quick, "crap, we want tacos but don't have taco seasoning." Pinterest to the rescue. I used this PIN and it was awesome!

2 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (Aleppo peppers would add a wonderful depth of flavor)
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp paprika
1 Tbsp cumin
2 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
Next, something I did yesterday special for you guys. I wanted something sweet, but didn't have much in the cupboards for ingredients. This PIN just had my name allllll over it:

 I mean, look at that! A cook muffin with cookie dough inside?! And chocolate chip?! Yes please!

Here are my steps, I followed this recipe fairly close ... though I used Nestle mini chip's ingredients on the back of it's bag for cookies. It's close to this recipe. And for the ganash, I just added milk to the recipe until I like the consistency of it. (don't use eggs in the ganash!)

The consencous on this sweet treat?
"It's the best thing I've had ever," said coworker1. "Girl, don't give up baking! That was delicious," said coworker2. "You still have you ass backside? Cause, you baked your ass backside off!" exclaimed coworker3. "Wow," said coworker4.
I can go on and on, all I know is when I was baking them ... I ate so much cookie dough that my stomach was as happy as a frog catching a mosquito. Let me tell you, it is delicious!
And there you have it folks! My pins for the week! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do and don't forget!
